Tenovus launch Legends Golf Day

September 11, 2014

Tenovus are delighted to announce the launch of the inaugural Legends Golf Day, taking place at the luxury four star Vale Resort on Thursday 18th September.

The Tenovus Legends Golf Day will be hosted by Wales and Lions rugby legend Dafydd James, who has challenged fellow sporting stars to join him in what promises to be a competitive event! .

Dafydd said; "I'm delighted to be hosting an event like this and can't wait to get out on the course with our team of legends and Tenovus supporters. I'm looking forward to seeing what our players can deliver on the course, and raising lots of money for such a brilliant charity."

The event takes in 18 holes on one of the longest inland courses in the UK and is sure to be a sell-out spectacular. Each team will consist of three entrants who will be joined by their very own sporting legend!

Entry costs £400 per team.

The day commences with registration at 8am, a shotgun start at 9.00am and a supper and prize giving from 3.30pm.

This exciting event will raise vital money towards funding Tenovus' cancer support services which include counselling, for anyone affected by cancer. Counselling can be particularly important for men, who may find it hard to talk things through with family or friends.

David Payne from Pontyclun was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforma Level 4, an aggressive incurable brain tumour back in October 2010.

David said "After a terminal diagnosis, having my Tenovus counsellor to talk to made all the difference, I found the sessions emotional rewarding and energising. The ability of the counsellor to help you cope with the illness was truly inspiring.

I have been the main source of income for the family; I managed a National Company, run my own business and was the one everyone relied on. Suddenly I couldn't drive, lost my left periphery vision, my confidence sapped away I became dependent on others, As a husband father and son I made every effort to protect my love one's from the emotions that surrounds a diagnosis of this type but I needed someone to lean on who do you turn to? That's when Tenovus entered my life the counselling afforded me has been an incredible help, I 'feel at peace and back in control. I describe Tenovus it as my rubber ring that kept me afloat, when I felt l was drowning."
